No, those videos are awful. They incite lynch mobs that twist every detail of the video to remove the fight or flight factor and try to make every action in the video one of premeditation.

Like when the store clerk shot a robber after he was down. Without the video, the police would have written it off as a criminal off the streets. Thanks to the video, it turned into 1st degree murder case against the clerk.

The amount of people saved by videos proving that a shooting was justified far outweighs the amount of people charged with murder for what was previously thought to be a justified murder.

Besides, maybe learn to finish off the robber before he has turned his back and fleeing or down on the ground. Although I don't know what you're talking about, some maybe the video would help.

A justified shooting is a justified shooting. Firing on someone running away means two things: it's not justified and you are a shitty shot for letting them get to that point.

Everyone who participated in the video above should hang from a tree. Like, yesterday.

I was referring to videos where people defend themselves. They're easier to twist and use to drown out the perp's rap sheet.

I'm sure there is a balance to be reached.
